Obama has won ATS. Disinformation abounds. You have given him power. He and Congress thank you.
I repeat, he has won ... IF you do not read and understand exactly what his LEGAL powers are - and I feel safe in saying that the majority here will
not do this.
There have been countless threads stating that Obama has given over the country's soverignty, etc. to different world agencies. This is EXACTLY what
he wants you to believe because if you believe he has that authority then he has deflected where the real blame should be laid - the Congress - and he
has increased his power over YOU. He has stated many times that he will take responsibility for all of this - this is because he wants us to think
that the responsibility is his to take.
Obama cannot appropriate money to the IMF or anywhere else - he can't even sign a treaty without Congress' approval. Congress is the one that
appropriates money. While you're all being pissed at Obama, Congress is working in the background TO GET RE-ELECTED one year from now so they can
continue with their agenda. Obama's not up for re-election for three more years and they know how short Americans' memories are. He is just a
deflection. Americans don't know what he is legally limited to and, therefore, accept that he can legally do all that he says he can do. THIS IS
The Executive CANNOT pass laws or appropriate money. Only Congress has that power. It is up to us to know who has what legal powers and when they
overstep those powers, it is up to us to call them on it, it is also up to us to elect responsible people to where the REAL power is - Congress.
Otherwise, they will have won.
1.) When Obama signs an executive order, READ IT, if it is not limited to adjusting POLICY of an EXISTING law, then it is illegal and must be fought.
An executive order cannot legislate new or expanded laws. Only bills passed in Congress can do that.
2.) When Obama promises money to the IMF or anywhere else, pay attention to what's up in Congress that will actually fund that promise, and yell
about that instead.
If you really want to do something about the mess we're in, you don't have to attend "tea parties" or anything else, hell, you don't even have to
leave your computer! I'm not dis'ing tea parties, I think they're good for making people realize that they're not alone in this. But tea party
attendance is not mandatory, knowledge of the structure of our government IS.
